Then the problem is short stroking. The bolt is not coming back fast enough to eject cleanly. I would guess you have brass marks just in front of the ejection port inside the reciever where the brass is hitting as the bolt comes back too slowly.

Didn't get to shoot this weekend. Local range is flooded. It does seem to be short stroking except that increasing the gas should have helped this but didn't.

As stated on my other thread, I got to shoot about 40 reloaded rounds from my 716 today using some new LR/SR magazines I bought. Everything functioned perfect, making me think the magazine was the main problem. Brass still ejecting a little less than originally. About 3-6 ft.
